Commissioned to write a minimal and unsettling orchestral score for Jasmina Cibic’s latest long form film project. 'The Gift' investigates how gifting is embedded within the landscape of Europe’s identity formation, exploring particularly charged political gifts of architecture, art, music and dance to national and ideological structures. The film’s locations include Oscar Niemeyer’s French Communist Party Headquarters in Paris and Palais of the Nations in Geneva.
Composed all music for 10 x 60 mins show ( in just over four weeks) which aired on UKTV and Internationally. Many tracks blended real Korean instruments ( kayagum, daegum and danso)with modern electronica to give the series a unique, modern Asian flavour. Listen to some selected tracks here:
A short score with Beautiful Chinese flutes and strings by virtuous flautist Guo Yue and Chris Bemand for this evocative and nostalgic film for The Vaseline healing project : a series of films and ventures designed to promote and help people in rural China.
Composed the 'black comedy' score featuring clarinet, violin, trumpet and piano for this art film by artist Jasmin Cibic . Three dancers create a set of illusions where the illusionist herself continuously disappears. The assistants and the tricks grow in violence with each of the subsequent six illusions, standing in for the six republics of former Yugoslavia, until the body of the illusionist completely vanishes as did the country !
